After years of planning and construction, the new Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture will soon open its doors in Washington, D.C. The tales recounted in its massive collection of artifacts of African-Americans’ experience over the last four centuries reflects a “belief in an America that often didn’t believe in them.”

Music legend Quincy Jones, who sits on the board of directors, gives Lee Cowan a sneak preview of the astonishing collection.
